By the beginning of 2023, Russians have become accustomed to the fact that there are various means of transportation available to reach any point in the country and beyond: by plane, bus, or train. The only thing left to do is to determine the most suitable option. However, the reality is such that there is a possibility that the passenger transportation industry in Russia will face sanction pressure. Therefore, a well-known service called BlaBlaCar will take up an important part of the market for these services. It is not possible to fully use it without registration, but in this article, we will explain how to make the most out of the platform without being required to link a phone number to your account.
If for any reason you do not wish to use an account on the service, then this article is for you. You may be familiar with situations like when:
- Your account is blocked due to a ban;
- You don't have time to create a profile;
- You don't have a spare phone number for registration.
We are sure that many people have encountered such situations. That's why we will tell you everything about BlaBlaCar. It is possible to find a trip by car on BlaBlaCar without registration, but there are some nuances. Let's see below.
BlaBlaCar: Finding a trip as a passenger without registration
Sometimes, when you plan a trip, everything is scheduled in advance, and you simply don't have time to register on various internet platforms and mobile applications. Or another situation is that you already have an account, but for some reason, the system has banned it, and you don't have an available phone to create a new account. Therefore, whether you want it or not, you will have to try to find travel companions on BlaBlaCar without registration for car trips.
Here's how to use the service to search for convenient trips from point A to point B without authorization:
1. Go to the service website (the mobile application will immediately require you to log in, so this option is not available);
2. Proceed to selecting the trip parameters (pickup location, date and time of the trip, destination, and number of passengers);
3. Click on the "Find" button;
4. Choose the best option from the search results list.
However, if you use the BlaBlaCar official website for searching without registration, not all features will be available. For example, you won't be able to book a trip or contact the driver for off-system seat reservations.
